Biden White House launches sanctions war against China
Apparently not content with diplomatic war on one front with Russia, the Biden administration appears ready to escalate with China following on the heels of last week’s persistent accusations that Beijing was mulling cooperation with Moscow on weapons resupplies for its Ukraine operation, as well as assistance on Western sanctions evasion.
Monday afternoon Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced more visa restrictions on Chinese officials related to prior charges that state authorities are overseeing the ethnic cleansing of Uighurs. It’s certainly interesting timing in terms of pulling out the the human rights card, given that throughout last week the admin’s China criticisms seemed exclusively focused on its “fence-sitting” over Ukraine.
Half Mariupol Under Russian Control, Zelensky Open to Talks on Crimea, Donbass, US Sanctions China
Greeks from Mariupol speak. Biden sends Soviet weapons to Ukraine. US sanctions China.
Belarus and Poland making moves. Coup rumours heat up.
Under the auspices of the United States, Poland is preparing to enter the Ukrainian conflict.
This plan dramatically increases the risks of the Ukrainian conflict escalating into a NATO war against Russia.
Until the end of April, Poland will send its troops to four western regions of Ukraine.
Preparations are underway for the entry of NATO forces into the Ukrainian conflict.
According to a number of data, the headquarters of the US European military command has already been deployed in Romania.
As part of the upcoming operation, it is planned to invade the Polish armed forces in the Volyn, Lvov, Rivne and Ternopil regions.
Poland’s intention is to annex these territories.
The intention of the United States is to involve NATO in a conflict with Russia – unleashing a large-scale war on the European continent.
For these purposes, it is planned to involve the maximum forces of other Central European countries, most likely Romania, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, the Baltic countries, to form an “allied” contingent for the implementation of Article 5 of the NATO Charter.
Poland’s actions may create a precedent that will lead to the dismantling of the Ukrainian state.
The Polish plan can also be repeated by Hungary and Romania.
The Ukrainian leadership is likely to accept the Polish demands in return for participating in the conflict against Russia.
An extremely alarming situation is emerging for Russia, when there is a real threat of entering into an armed confrontation with a country, or a group of NATO member countries.
What consequences this can lead to – it’s scary to think.
Also, let’s not forget that on the southern flank – in the South Caucasus, the Black Sea coast – Turkey is strengthening itself – also a member of NATO.
It is necessary to take into account the non-illusory chance of Turkey entering the war, in the form of a landing on the Black Sea coast, for example, in Georgia.
And, you need to take a sober look at things – there is a risk of direct armed confrontation with the United States.
The tuning fork window is expanding every day.
The situation is extremely worrying.
This sort of aggression aired on primetime Russian TV is not covered by the sources above.
Final Warning; – Russian state television: “If you send a Peace Corps, Poland & the Baltic will disappear”
“Connect here and now with Kaliningrad”
Nuclear strike and invasion of Poland-Lithuania were predicted by Russian experts during a broadcast on Russian state television.
The Kremlin spokesman Vladimir Soloviev and his entourage sent a message to the EU-NATO not to dare to send a peacekeeping body to Ukraine.
Otherwise there will be a generalized war using nuclear weapons.
“Warsaw will disappear”
They report about:
” Europe needs to understand one thing: You will be hit hard by the nuclear disarmament if you decide to prepare and send a peacekeeping force.
That would mean nuclear war. This was also told to French journalists on February 8.
Brave Poles, your Warsaw will disappear from the map.
Brave Germans, Estonians, Baltic States, Occasionally Baltic States,
I know that there are big problems on the border with Kaliningrad.
Maybe it’s time to think about a corridor in Kaliningrad. A land corridor in Kaliningrad. Why not;
If we do one in Transnistria, we can do one more.
Lithuania and Poland are very rude. They do not understand that we can deal with them faster than Ukraine.
Because building a corridor is a local military operation, much simpler than what we do in Ukraine.
The Baltic next target
Russian media report features:
“On February 24, 2022, Russia, the United States and the European Union entered an era of open global confrontation. The Collective West was the first to raise the “Iron Curtain-2” in front of Moscow and now the ball is in the Kremlin’s side.
It is not known how long the new recurrence of the Cold War will last, but we can already say who exactly lost it. These are the small Baltic democracies that, because of their own stupidity, have fallen into the trap of the sanctions mechanism and are in danger of becoming a bargaining chip.
The Baltic states have been digging their own economic grave for a long time with their own hands. Tired of enduring the Russophobia of Riga, Vilnius and Tallinn for decades, Moscow several years ago began the process of transferring transit flows to its own ports in the Baltic Sea. Following the failed Belomaidan and subsequent sanctions, Belarus also transferred a significant portion of its oil and mineral exports to Russian ports.
Out of a desire to win the favor of the Americans, Lithuania severed its business ties with China. This in itself created a huge hole in the budget of the Baltic Tigers, making their future bleak. But the “independent” former Soviet republics, of course, did not calm down.
Now the Baltic states have decided to “punish” Russia for its second “crusade” against Nazism in Ukraine.
And for the accomplices of Nazism in Riga, Vilnius and Tallinn, all this will soon end very badly for purely economic and geopolitical reasons.
Riga is also calling for a ban on Russian-registered ships entering European Union territorial waters.
It is clear that this will certainly not lead to anything good for the Baltic states themselves. In the context of the rapidly deteriorating socio-economic situation there, anti-Russian and anti-Belarusian propaganda and repression against our compatriots will increasingly revolve.
There will be a process of open fascism of the ruling regimes and society in order to provoke Moscow in response to the NATO bloc member states.
U.S. Signals It’s Discouraging Zelensky From Making Concessions to Russia That Could End the Fighting
On Monday (March 21), the State Department signaled that the US is discouraging Zelensky from making concessions to Russia in negotiations that are aimed at ending the fighting in Ukraine.
State Department spokesman Ned Price said Zelensky has “made it very clear that he is open to a diplomatic solution that does not compromise the core principles at the heart of the Kremlin’s war against Ukraine.”
When asked to elaborate on his point, Price said that the war is “bigger” than Russia and Ukraine. “The key point is that there are principles that are at stake here that have universal applicability everywhere,” he said.
Price said Putin was trying to violate “core principles,” including “the principle that each and every country has a sovereign right to determine its own foreign policy, has a sovereign right to determine for itself with whom it will choose to associate in terms of its alliances, its partnerships, and what orientation it wishes to direct its gaze.”
Instead of pushing Zelensky to declare neutrality, the US continues to arm Ukraine. When asked if the US is counseling Zelensky on the negotiations with Russia, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Monday that the US is in touch with Ukrainian officials every day. But she said the role the US can play the most “effectively” in the process is to send more weapons into the warzone.
Centuries ago, whenever Kings and Queens wanted to quietly wage an unofficial war against their enemies, they issued something called a “Letter of Marque” to private sailors known as Privateers.
The Letter would legally authorize these Privateers (which was just a polite way of saying ‘Pirate’) to seize other kingdom’s ships and cargo while at sea.
It was essentially government-sanctioned theft.
Well, the United States Congress is bringing back this practice.

“Generation damage” will be caused in the area

A possible use of nuclear tactical weapons by Russia will be on the table in NATO and in Biden’s meeting with EU leaders.
This information comes in the middle of another disturbing news as J. Borel told the Arab media that “the EU will prepare for battles” without further clarifying what it means.
USA: The use of nuclear weapons by Russia on the table
US National Security Adviser T. Sullivan has revealed that the US will discuss with its allies and allies the possible use of nuclear weapons by Russia.
T. Sullivan admitted in a press conference that ” the possibility of using tactical nuclear weapons by Russia is something that should concern us.”
“We have not changed our nuclear stance to date but we are constantly monitoring this possibility. We take it as seriously as one can take it “.
“Russia’s nuclear capabilities will be among other issues that Biden will discuss with European allies.”
Activation of NATO Article 5
According to US media reports, the senators reacted with concern to an intelligence report stating that Russian President Vladimir Putin could use a small, targeted nuclear bomb as his troops plunged into a costly, painstaking battle against the insurgents.
Senator Marco Rubio R-Fla. Said such an attack could force NATO allies, including the United States, to invoke their collective defense in accordance with Article 5 of the alliance’s statutes and to retaliate against Russia. especially if the nuclear impact crosses the Ukrainian border and kills or makes sick civilians living in Poland or other NATO countries.
“If a nuclear weapon is fired inside Ukraine, radioactive material will potentially cross the border ,” said Rubio, deputy chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
“If radioactive material falls on the border with Poland, they will claim to have been attacked,” he added.
“Radiation kills people, it certainly creates long-term health problems,” he continued.
“So we are dealing with an uncharted area at this point. The danger in this process is always that… someone will do something they do not think will cross the line. But the people they are targeting consider that it goes beyond a certain line. And so you are in escalation “.
Senator Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., A well-known veteran of the Iraq War who serves on the Armed Services Committee, agreed with Rubio:
“If this spreads, it could be considered an attack on NATO allies.”
Duckworth said she needed to study more before commenting on such a sensitive issue.
But Article 5 states that an attack on any NATO country is an attack on all its members.
Use of a regular nuclear weapon
The New York Times described how Putin, feeling cramped into the conflict with Ukraine, could fire a smaller, tactical nuclear weapon to try to win the upper hand in nearly a month of war in which Russia has suffered major and embarrassing military losses. losses.
Experts told the paper that Putin could launch a nuclear weapon into an uninhabited area or over the North Sea in an effort to deter NATO allies and force Ukraine to surrender. In recent weeks, Putin himself has described Russia as ” one of the most powerful nuclear powers” and has ordered his generals to put Russia’s nuclear power in a “special combat readiness regime.”
“I think it will take us to a place we have not been to since the Nagasaki era, where a real nuclear device was deliberately fired as part of a military campaign, even if it was not aimed at specific targets,” he said. , Jack Reed. , DR.I.
“So this goes beyond a huge red line. “And I think the whole world would not just be shocked, but they would be convinced of Putin’s irresponsibility.”
“Generation damage” in the area
Senator Shelley Moore Capito, RW.Va., who traveled to Poland and Germany over the weekend to speak with Ukrainian refugees and U.S. troops, argued that there was no such thing as a “small” nuclear bomb.
Such a weapon would cause “generational damage” to the area, whether developed in a residential area or not, said Capito, who previously chaired a Senate subcommittee on clean air and nuclear safety.
Rubio, who is a member of the “Gang of Eight” lawmakers who receive the most sensitive classified information updates, said he did not believe a Russian nuclear attack was “imminent”.
However, he said that nuclear energy is in Russia’s strategy book and is an option that Rubio has been considering since the start of Putin’s military campaign.
“Their military doctrine predicts that if they lose a conventional war against NATO, they will fire a nuclear weapon or even use one against NATO troops to escalate and force everyone to come to the negotiating table,” he said . Rubio.
“I do not see anything indicating that it will be imminent, but it would be a rather dramatic moment in the history of the world,” he said.
